While working in the lab, please observe the following guidelines, and make sure that your participants do, as well.

1. Regularly self test if you are running participants. Self tests are available in the labs where participants are being run; if you run out, ask lab support.

2. If you cannot keep 1.5 m distance from your participant during the preparation of your (e.g. EEG) experiment or after an experiment, wear a type II mask and ask your participant to wear a mask as well. Type II masks are available in the labs.

You and the participant can take off the mask if you’re not in the same room (for instance, when the participant is in a sound-attenuated booth with the door closed).

3. After an infant experiment, disinfect any toy the infant may have played with during or after the experiment. Disinfectant wipes are available in the labs.
